Those are 180ml size, right? I've only seen that size at conbinis, not regular liquor shops.

Fasola at Narita is using pre-order system too now
Has anyone had luck with the Narita pre-order system or have any insight into when stock is replenished (e.g., at a certain time daily)?

Had dinner last night at Suntory Whisky House in Osaka Grand Front. Premium flight of Hibiki 21,Nikka 18 and Yamazaki 18 for •3800. Well worth it. About a 1 1/2 ounce pour of each.
